Sir:

I received this morning information by a person I sent for that purpose, that the enemy left Crosscrick yesterday, they took the road to Rockfish. This you may rely on as the person I sent was in town in the night. I requested of Col. Malmadey to leave Capt. Henderson and his troop with me. I am now on my march to Crosscrick, where I shall be happy to receive your commands, and am with due respect,

Sir, your obed, Ser.,
JAMES EMMET,
Col. of the County.
